Selected quotes from The Phantom Tollbooth:


"It's true that there are many lands you've still to visit (some of which are not even on the map) and wonderful things to see (that no one has yet imagined), but we're quite sure that if you really want to, you'll find a way to reach them all by yourself.".





"But it's not just learning things that's important. It's learning what to do with what you learn and learning why you learn things at all that matters."
